Star Tours

Star Tours
Star gazers unite! Tahoe Adventure Company and Tony Berendsen present: Telescopic tours of the midnight sky! This fusion brings you the most exciting tour of the season. It all starts with guided sunset kayaking, hiking, or snowshoeing followed by a brilliant tour of the midnight sky.

Our knowledgeable guides will teach you about the natural and human history of the area, while you watch the sun casts a purple alpenglow onto the Sierras. You can paddle through the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe, hike or snowshoe through Tahoe's vibrant, yet peaceful forest. You will be guided to a viewing point, where Tony will open your mind to the unknown world above you. Hot drinks and snacks will be served as our Star Tour begins.

For the past 15 years, award winning astronomer Tony Berendsen has exposed the superlative Sierra skies to many lucky people throughout California and Nevada. In addition to his tours, he is currently the President of the Northern Nevada Science Coalition and previously was the President of the Astronomical Society of Nevada. His large aperture telescopes will take you into the unfamiliar mysterious world that blankets the Sierra Nevada.

Let us guide you to mars and back again! Give us a call today to book this once in a lifetime opportunity. This tour is great for kids, teens, and adults bring the whole family.
